Firing order

Four cylinder two wheel drive manual 95,000 miles.

I was not thinking and took off all of the spark plug wires at once. Now I am trying to figure out how they go back on. How do I find out the engine firing order for my car?(1.5 liter engine)

Also, do the spark plug wires have to be in a specific order, like longest to shortest?

Do you
have the same problem?

Is this a DOHC or SOHC engine? The length of the wires does not matter as much as the firing order. However, if you do not get them in the right place then they may not reach from cylinder to coil properly.
